I carry a S&W M&P 40 Shield. My IWB holster is a N82 American made leather with leather suede back for comfort. The weapon locks in the hard shell and has a twist retention to un-holster. I carry my S&W M&P Shield 40 because of its reliability and the 7 round mag allows for a full hand grip. Recoil for me is not an issue. I put on green night sights for better target accusation day and night. I like the fact that the 40 has the knockdown power if it was ever needed. God Bless America.
